RALEIGH, N.C. ? Three NC State programs ? menís basketball, menís cross country and rifle ? have been recognized by the NCAA for their exceptional work in the classroom as part of the NCAAís Academic Performance Program. The awards are given annually to teams scoring in the top 10 percent in each sport with their APRs.

Only two menís basketball programs and four menís cross country programs in the ACC were honored, with NC State being commended in both sports.

The APR provides a real-time view of a teamís academic success by tracking the progress of each student-athlete during the school year. By measuring eligibility and retention each semester or quarter, the APR provides a clear picture of the academic culture in each sport.

Not in a long, long time. Even when that other coach was here we were not getting this kind of recognition.
